A garden can be defined as land adjoining a house that is able to be designated with a specific purpose or future, commonly used for growing flowers, fruit, and vegetables. Owners unconsciously place elements within these spaces having been influenced by their religion, culture, or surroundings creating an identity within the community the garden is situated. They often become places of tension where the picturesque lives alongside the uncontrollable forces of nature, therefore taking on an ambiguous role in our everyday. Gardens reflect memories or imaginations and these particular places have become a comforting memory of my childhood within ideas of home, locality, and rootedness. Whilst representing life and death the garden intersects with place as a sense of home.
